Special Teams Practice – Wedges, Officials, and Not Much Else

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2009 – 4:05 pm

Special teams practice lasted for about an hour this afternoon, and it was notable for four major reasons.

1) The returns of Anthony Montgomery, J.D. Skolnitsky, Lorenzo Alexander, and Eddie Williams to practice. No, these are not huge name guys, but more people returned to the field than were newly subtracted from it. Devin Thomas was present, but did not have a helmet and did not participate. Read more »

Edwin Williams Keeps On Working

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2009 – 12:34 pm

It’s been a while since I’ve checked in with Edwin Williams, the undrafted center out of Maryland. But whatever he’s been doing in the meantime, it’s certainly been working.

Offensive line coach Joe Bugel, talking to the media the other day, had good things to say about Williams. “I like Edwin Williams,” he said. “Over the summer he did a great job of weightlifting and … I’ll tell you what, he’s a smart kid. He comprehends a lot between what’s good and what’s bad. I think in the long range he’s going to be a good football player.”

And that may very well be, in the long range. At the moment, though, he’s a rookie. And when I caught up with him the other day, he was doing the traditional rookie task of carrying other people’s helmets. I was tempted to pester him with questions while he was lugging four helmets and an extra set of pads, but instead waited while he dropped them off in the locker room.

Still, the first question I asked was about the helmets.

“I had Dockery’s, Stephon’s, I want to say Jeremy Bridges’s. I think it was Jeremy, anyhow — I had three. And I had Stephon’s pads, and of course mine.”

Is that as bad as its gotten as far for hazing?

Williams: “Yeah, pretty much. I don’t think that’s a negative in my perspective. It’s a little tough because of the situation we’re in [on the offensive line], we only have two rookies. So they’re going to give us the burden. It just comes with the territory, it’s fine. It’s not like they beat me up or anything.”

Friday, August 7: Quarterback Dodgeball

Posted by Matt Terl on August 7, 2009 – 8:50 am

No morning practice today, open or otherwise. Just a special teams practice this afternoon. This is a light Friday, before tomorrow’s scrimmage (and Fan Appreciation Day!) and — less than a week from now — the first preseason game.

To tide you over in the absence of morning practice updates, here’s Intern Dave’s video of the ever-popular quarterback dodgeball drill from yesterday.
